I'm sure one (probably most) Forum menbers can help me identify the 'V' below this collar badge. Cheers, Bill

The 'V' (worn only by battalion officers) denotes that the individual is an officer of a pre-territorial battalion = Volunteers.

I would have guessed at the 'Monmouthshire Regt'.

I would have to agree with you Seph. Attached is a picture of a Officers collar badge on a Uniform of an officer of the Monmouthshire Regiment.

I think there is some confusion here between the pre 1908 Volunteer battalion ( which in 1908 became the Territorials )and the WW1 VTC`s which later became Volunteer battalions of county regiments.

The "V" below the collar badge in the illustation is ,I believe,as worn in the WW1 period.This has been the subject of earlier threads.

P.B.

I'll agree with you there 'P.B' on the confusion issue. The 'V' was widely worn by the relevant btn's during WW.1.

I've illustrated an example below for the Lancashire Fusiliers: 1916.
